Fiery Red Hair

I just want to be out in the world tonight.

The book I’m reading has transformed me so much, that I want to take the evening to immerse myself in it.

I have under 100 pages to go, and I want to share with you a few quotes that bring me a great deal of peace before I get back to it.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Men have talked about the world without paying attention to the world.

The present is an unknown. It has never been here before, and neither have you.

Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be experienced.

If you love it enough, anything will talk to you.

It has often been said that we carry the sea around with us, as evidenced by the percentage of saltwater in our blood…

Our potential for harmonizing with the natural world is obscured by our instinct to dominate it.

If you put three grains of sand inside a vast cathedral, the cathedral will be more closely packed with sand than space is with stars.

Is not all art a celebration of loss?

I may or may not finish this book tonight. I may read it more slowly. Part of me never wants it to end.
